*The mother of late rapper Tupac Shakur says she will release his ”entire body of work,” including all of his unreleased tracks following his death in 1996.
“I believe it is our responsibility to make sure that Tupac’s entire body of work is made available for his fans,” stated Afeni Shakur. “My son left many incomplete pieces and even more unfinished ideas. Using the blueprints he gave us, I am committed to fulfilling this duty.”
Tupac was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1996 at age 25. Afeni, who runs the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, which helps underprivileged children receive an education – was the head of her son’s estate following his death, but has since handed it over to Jampol Artist Management (JAM), who have dedicated themselves to preserving the star’s legacy.
JAM founder Jeffrey Jampol added: ”It’s our responsibility, and our privilege, to ensure that new generations of fans experience the power of Tupac’s music, his ideas and his storytelling.”
